Rockets dismantle Fall Creek with huge first-quarter
Before many of the fans at the Aug. 24 Spencer-Columbus/Fall Creek football game had gotten their popcorn and sodas and settled into their bleacher seats, the Rockets were well on their way to their second Cloverbelt Conference win of the season.

It began on the game’s first play, as senior Hunter Luepke returned the opening kick to the Cricket 33-yard line.
